Should Building Codes be Changed to Keep Fans from Falling Out of Their Seats?

Should Building Codes be Changed to Keep Fans from Falling Out of Their Seats? | Sports Management | Scoop.it
Should building codes be changed to keep fans from falling out of upper-level stadium sections?

Via Adam White, Scott J. Fields
Jesse Hinojosa's insight:

This article touches on something that can be contributed to many factors including, but not limited to, alcohol consumption and building codes. 2000-2009 North American sporting events have witnessed three deaths related to spectators falling over railings of an upper deck. The article discusses both deaths and injuries associated with the spectators falling from the upper decks, it also includes the argument of buidling codes. International building codes require a minimum height of 42 inches for any railing on the upper concourse of a stadium, whereas the minimum railing height building code in North America is a mere 28 inches.-Via Scott Fields

This article addresses the keeping the fans safe. Although it is important of maintaining good sight lines to see the game, keeping fans safe should also be a priority. Maintaining railing only to code seems to be out of date. Maybe when the code was established, the risk of them falling was lower. Raising the minimum height of the railings while still maintaining the line of sight for fans would be a good way to keep them safe while enjoying the game.

1. What I learned was how important food is to the sports industry.

2.What I found intresting was how it was New haven pizza and I grew up with new haven pizza becasue I am from CT.

3.I selected this article becasue I love food and sports and thought it would be a great read.

4.This greatly impacts sports industry becasue it is just another seller for your company.I think it is important to have good food at sporting events becasue you need us much money as possible to keep your busniness runnng.

Concessions are one of the most important aspects of a sports venue. If a sports team has poor food quality it will definitely have an adverse effect on the attendance.

Scott J. Fields's curator insight, June 27, 2013 9:43 PM

This video article is really interesting, especially considering the recent news regarding the deployment of surveillance drones over American soil. Personally, my friends and I follow Alex Jones, and I voted for Ron Paul in the last two elections, so I find the fact that our government and her agencies want to use surveillance drones on her citizens. This broadcast is from Alex Jones' Nightly InfoWar News and talks about not only sheriff departments in California who want to use drones for crowd surveillance, but also a new drone that can enter and exit buildings via doors and windows. Not exactly what I want, but I do see how using it in crowd situations can benefit crowd safety and management, especially when crowds always exceed security and police personal. 

bryant tucker's curator insight, July 23, 2016 5:47 PM

I would not be opposed to having drones at sporting events if it was used correctly just to keep things in order, now if it was used to run warrants on people than I would disagree.
